It’s no secret that Apple uses the notch on its phones to accommodate the wide range of sensors including the TrueDepth Camera as well as sensors required for Face ID authentication. As per a new revelation by a Twitter source, Apple may be working on a revamped design for its 2020 iPhone flagship, one without a notch and sporting an all-screen display. And what about the sensors?
Well, it is said that Apple will move these to the top bezel by leaving out a little space between the bezel and the display. So while this phone will finally get rid of the notch, it won’t have a completely bezel-less design like the ones we see from Android manufacturers in the market.
But still, an iPhone with a new design should be welcomed by the industry. It is worth noting that the iPhone front panel has remained relatively unchanged since the iPhone X was launched a couple of years ago. While the new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max do bring a new rear camera system, the front panel remains relatively unchanged compared to last year’s iPhone XS and XS Max.
This information on the rumored 2020 iPhone design came via Twitter courtesy of popular tech source Ben Geskin, who was also kind enough to share a mockup based on the said design. This image also details how the phone will accommodate all the necessary sensors without the notch.

It’s too soon to tell if this device will ever see the light of the day, but as fans, we remain ever hopeful. What do you make of this potentially game-changing design? Is Apple a little too late to the bezel-less display game?
